Fruits and Vegetables

Having lived in a few neighbourhoods in the DC-MD area, I am wondering where people think the best place is to get fruits and vegetables.

When I lived in Logan Circle and then moved to Bethesda, I was shocked at the difference in quality between the Giants. The Logan Circle one, which is in a non-affluent neighbourhood, had produce that clearly would go bad within a few days. While up in Bethesda it was produce that was much more enticing. I guess I am naive to think that the supermarkets wouldn't be that obvious about dumping stuff on lower income customers.

I've tried Whole Foods but the prices are out of control. And MOM has very limited selection.

Are the farmers markets the best way to go?
